SUBANG JAYA:SMK Seafield has built an RM189,000 toilet facility. It was opened during the school's annual family carnival recently. The toilet has been dubbed R&R because its design is similar to that of toilet facilities at toll highway rest and recreation areas. There are 14 cubicles, 12 taps, a shower room and a changing room in the girls' section, and nine cubicles, nine urinals, 11 taps, a shower room and a changing room in the boys' section, Gel soap is provided. To maintain cleanliness, students are required to wear slippers supplied by the school when they use the toilet. Principal Zaleha Abu Hasan said it was built to meet the needs of the growing student population.
Previously, she said there were only two male toilets and a female toilet, with four to five cubicles each, catering to the 2,400 students. "Students lining up to use the toilets was a common sight, especially during recess. "We did not want them to waste time lining up and missing their lessons.
"We wanted to provide comfortable, clean and easy-to-manage toilet facilities for our students." Zaleha said RM180,000 was raised for the toilet project at last year's family carnival.
"We have been holding family carnivals since 2005 to collect funds for school programmes and facilities. "The school cooperative contributed some money as well." Zaleha said RM200,000 was raised at this year's carnival. She said the school was planning to build a co-curricular centre for the students to carry out in-door activities. Part of the funds collected will also be used to cover expenses on general school maintenance and upgrading the school library she added.
